With six legs and antennae like flies and ants... But above all: two beautiful pairs of wings. Butterflies are insects. Their first life, in the form of a caterpillar, lasts a few weeks.

Earth is the only planet that has earthquakes! There's a simple reason: it is the only planet with a fragmented crust that slowly travels on a layer of more-viscous material. When the tectonic plates rub against each other, they create pressures that get released little by little. This can result in minor shocks that no-one feels, or major earthquakes as if Godzilla were stomping through. So what can we do? Learn the simple things to do, put together an "earthquake kit" and keep an eye out for the next "big one".
Knowing the weather is of utmost important, that's why meteorologists track atmospheric air movements, the altitude and shape of clouds, winds, and violent phenomena (tornadoes, typhoons, hurricanes...).

In the age of the internet and globalization, we are saturated with information. How can we sort through it? How can we identify fake news? Can all information be taken at face value? As usual, the POCQQ collection provides us with the keys to better understand a topic and form our own opinions!
The hackers fascinate us as much as they worry us. We talk more and more about them, but we do not understand them. Are they criminals or computer heroes? Pirates or whistleblowers? What do they want? Should we fear or support them?
We may all be human but women still have a long way to achieve equality or even the right to self-determination! What is the status of women throughout the world? How were feminist movements built over time? How can men sign up to feminism?
With the emergence of new technologies and scientific advances, medicine might sound like science fiction. Bionics, genetic experiment, robot surgery… Will transhumanism enhance human? Will this progress impact everyone or only a dominant minority?
Climate change. It is a hot topic and most of the time what we hear doesn’t make sense. Will there really be an increase in storms in the future?
